Seattle's Union Gospel Mission

To serve, rescue and transform those in greatest need through the grace of Jesus Christ.

We're standing in the gap! We refuse to forget our poor and homeless neighbors. Our programs awaken hope in the hearts of people overcome with poverty and homelessness.

But that's not all. We're challenging the standard thinking about how to fight poverty with 5 key areas of service:

1. Hunger
2. Homelessness
3. Addiction
4. High Risk Youth
5. Poverty

Change like this won't become reality through our efforts alone. We're partnering with churches, organizations . . . and local government, to make this happen. Our work is made possible by people like you who believe it's time to bring hope to the darkest places in Seattle. Donate now to keep this work going.

The BEST OF Season 1: Rise Seattle Podcast

riseseattlepodcast.com

We're excited to share that our President, Jeff Lilley, was featured on Rise Seattle's "Best of Season 1" podcast! Earlier last year he had the opportunity to speak with Tyler and Phil, and was able to discuss "relationships vs. resources and the rise in drug use in the city" in Episode 7.

In their latest podcast, Tyler and Phil "recap Jeff’s comments and encourage our fans to go back and really 'listen to learn' with this episode."

We're honored to have our President featured, and thankful for the opportunity to share about those in greatest need!

riseseattlepodcast.com In this season finale episode of “Rise Seattle” podcast, Phil and Tyler recap eight of thier favorite moments from episodes throughout the first season. From stories of survival to new perspectives on issues affecting Seattleites, each of these interviews encapsulate Rise Seattle's mission a

We love our BAM (Bring A Meal) partners here at the Mission, and we want to honor one of them by sharing their story as they prepare to make a big move this coming June!

Meet John Platt. John is a Seattle restauranteur, dear friend and major contributor to our Hope Place BAM's. He co-founded St Clouds and the Neighborhood Cooking Foundation's Homeless Cooking Project, where he alongside volunteers have been cooking up incredible food for our homeless brothers and sisters in Seattle for over 16 years!

We were incredibly blessed when the Homeless Cooking Project became a BAM partner and began cooking twice a month to serve our ladies at Hope Place! John will be dearly missed, and we are grateful that the partnership he created with the Neighborhood Cooking Foundation's Homeless Cooking Project will continue even after he departs from the Emerald City!

Thank you, John, for your service, your heart and for all that you have done for our guests here at the Mission and those in greatest need!

We want to give a shoutout to Comfort Socks, Your City Sports and Cloud 9 Sports for partnering with us to provide new socks for our mobile shower unit!

Handbags designer gives hope to homeless women in Seattle

"It really touched my heart. I didn't know the magnitude of what this is going to be or what this is going to bring to their lives." - Joy Egbegimba

This week Joy Egbegimba and Kela Hall, two business women from Seattle, visited Hope Place to give Nuciano designer handbags to three of our May graduates. Egbegimba designs and markets the handbags, made of the highest quality leather and specifically designed to make women feel beautiful. She is a member of KDHall Foundation: The Movement, a business group for women that was founded by Hall.

Our three graduates were overwhelmed by the handbags—something many women take for granted, but that for them was a symbol of worth. As one of the graduates said, she is used to second-hand clothes and always getting the left-overs in life. She would never consider herself worthy of something brand new. To have someone else give her a gift that has never been used and is of such high quality was truly a confidence booster. In addition to the handbags, each woman was also given a year-long membership in K.D. Hall Foundation. This will give them opportunities to network, attend classes, and learn from the women in Seattle’s business community!
